Tampa's historic Cuscaden pool reopens after renovation

- A historic Tampa pool reopened Saturday morning following a major renovation.

The Cuscaden pool is located in V.M. Ybor City and originally opened in the 1930s. It closed in 2009 because of several issues, including cracks and leaks on the pool surface.

The above-ground pool and its complex underwent a $3.1 million renovation that started earlier in 2016.

City leaders held a reopening ceremony at 10 a.m. Saturday.

The pool was named after Arthur W. Cuscaden, a Tampa pioneer who was a member of city council and the school board.

The pool is heated and will be open year-round. It will also offer swimming classes for infants 6-months-old to adults.
